Subramanian Swamy for maximum punishment for cow slaughterers

Cow slaughterers should be subjected to maximum punishment possible, said Rajya Sabha Member Subramanian Swamy and added that he will soon present a private bill in the Parliament in this connection.

Delivering the keynote address during the valedictory function of Gou Yatra at Kulur on Sunday, he said cow slaughter should be banned completely. Although there are provisions in the Constitution, no government has implemented them effectively. Even Mahatama Gandhi, Dr B R Ambedkar and Dr Rajendra Prasad had proposed ban on cow slaughter. But, it was not possible due to lack of political willpower. Cow slaughter is not necessary for any religion.

He urged the government to stop export of beef. Ban on cow slaughter, building of Ram Mandir and resurrection of culture are the needs of the nation today and everyone must stay committed to work towards these issues, he said.

Ramachandrapur mutt seer Raghaveshwara Bharati said that cattle must also be able to have natural birth, natural life and natural death like people. He said he has plunged into the movement to seek life for cattle and there is no question of taking a back step even if it claims his life.

Cows are assets of the nation. Beef export, cross-breeding and use of chemical fertilisers should be banned to protect cows. Diary farming should be encouraged. The government should take steps to protect gomala lands. If people employed in slaughter houses are ready to leave their works and willing to lead a respectful life, he is ready to provide jobs for them.

Vishwa Santhosha Swami asked why the PETA is not raising its voice against cow slaughter. Around 1,300 seers from various states took part in the programme. Some BJP leaders took part, no leader from Congress turned up.
